Bushings for Cuban Pen Hardware Kits

Precisely machined to match the diameters of your Cuban Pen Hardware Kits.
Item #
54645
Rating:
100% of 100

This is a complete set of bushings precisely machined to match the diameters of your pen hardware kit. The bushings let you easily gauge the progress of your turning, allowing you to achieve the smooth, perfectly flush seams so valued in a top-quality hand-turned writing instrument. Just turn the blank until the ends are almost flush with the bushings, then sand to final dimension.


Tip: When turning light-colored woods, apply a bit of CA glue to the bushings to prevent metal dust from migrating onto the turning blank.

Some more large pens
These bushings are spot on, made making my pens relatively easy. These are old standby pens, and garner a good price when sold. Please enjoy some of the pens I have turned.
Bushings work fine for non-Rockler hardware.
